Abstract

In this paper a p-median like model is formulated to address the issue of locating new facilities when there is uncertainty. Several possible future scenarios with respect to demand and/or the travel times/distance parameters are presented. The planner will want a strategy of positioning that will do as "well as possible" over the future scenarios. This paper presents a discrete location model formulation to address this P-Median problem under uncertainty. The model is applied to the location of fire stations in Barcelona.
